Oxford Health’s new-look summer edition of Insight magazine is now out.

Available to download and in print, the 56-page summer edition is packed with stories and features that not only celebrate the fantastic work carried out by our teams every day of the year, but also informs you of some key developments.

The cover story reveals how virtual reality is now being used to help our patients overcome their fear of heights and how it could be used as a future way of delivering therapies for a range of conditions.

We also take a look at a new sensor system, introduced on a mental health in-patient ward, which allows patients a better night’s sleep.

Insight pays tribute to the now retired deputy chief operating officer Pauline Scully after her 40-year career and marks the arrival of trust chair David Walker, who sets out his vision for the trust and the challenges ahead.

You can meet our exceptional people award winners, peer support workers, nurse associate trainees, social workers, and teams from the MIU unit in Abingdon, the Recovery College and Oxford Healthcare Improvement. Find out why Legs Matter too and who our newly elected governors are.

Who should be the 2019 Oxford Health hero? We are asking for nominations for the coveted Improving Patient Experience Category in this year’s Staff Recognition Awards.

Insight has a special feature thanking our army of volunteers and looks at the trust’s new dementia strategy.

Find out all about our big event of the year HealthFest on September 14; learn how Oxford Health Charity can make such a difference to staff, patients and their families and carers.
